Mitch already pointed you to QTBUG-74940. The biggest question
regarding a linuxdeployqt is: what exactly is the deployment format
going to be? There's no standard way of deploying Linux applications.
There are many.
The community contributions create AppImage packages. That seems to be
a reasonable choice. Other opinions?

We have this CMake API in tech preview that adds the *deployqt calls as
installation step. See
However, Linux is not supported due to the lack of linuxdeployqt.
Regarding CMake's GET_RUNTIME_DEPENDENCIES: I'm with Scott here. This
solves only part of what the *deployqt tools do.
